Faridabad: Following a tip-off, the Faridabad police arrested three members of a gang who were allegedly involved in over ten loot cases. According to police, all thefts were carried out along the highways in Faridabad to facilitate quick escape for the accused. 

The accused have been identified as Vishal and Sahil of Faridabad, and Ruban of Delhi. Vishal and Sahil are brothers, said the officials. "All three were arrested from the district's Palla area while they were trying to carry out a loot," added the official.

Subsequent to their arrests, the three accused were sent in a six-day police remand, which has since been completed.  Following which, they were produced before a court again and have been remanded in judicial custody.

Modus operandi of 'Dhoom' movie

According to Sube Singh, PRO of Faridabad Police, the course of action of the accused men was quite unique. "Their modus operandi was along the lines of the movie Dhoom," said the officer. He further added that the crimes were executed mostly in the areas along the highway and the accused would make a plan for a quick escape. 

"One of the three would stay with the scooter near the spot of the crime, and would alert his accomplices if anybody was in the area," said Singh adding that the accused had a high pickup FZ motorcycle, so they could carry out crimes and flee from the spot in the blink of an eye.

Moreover, the PRO said that the accused would resort to various means of looting. They would halt the vehicles on the road and tell the drivers that their tyres were punctured. "They would sprinkle oil on the windshield of the vehicles. When the vehicles would stop, they would loot the occupants and flee from the spot," added Singh, reported The Indian Express.

During the investigation, the items stolen by the accused in previous 11 loot cases, were also retrieved. "These include eight laptops, Rs 80,000 in cash, an FZ motorcycle, and one scooter," said Singh.
